24: Bland Styling
Unfortunately, drivers need to face the facts here that Hondas cars are bland cars. There was a time when Honda cars were innovative and original. The design language peaked in the mid-2000s with the futuristic Civic and Ridgeline and never went back. The Honda brand has been stuck on a fastback theme for its sedans (via Car & Driver).
Many enthusiasts have been criticizing Honda cars’ styling lately. The Honda Civic SI is the latest victim in the design language Honda has been following. The curious thing about the Civic SI is that it’s still a strong seller for Honda. But in recent years, the styling has drifted further away from the formula that made it popular.
